Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The tour is very basic as there is a group guide who joins you on the boat and stays on the boat the whole time but her information and historical knowledge is good and I enjoyed what I learnt. I recommend trying to get a seat outside as the view is fantastic. The boat tour spent enough time of each island but a little longer on Murano would have been good as you don't get to see much more than the glass blowing demonstration and nearby stores. A little further down it a cheaper store with some beautiful independent jewellery. I would suggest waiting until Burano to buy some lunch but only take away as we didn't spend a lot of time there.

The church in Torcello is well worth paying entry to see - it is small but the mosaic, if you like mosaics, is spectacular. And we left our guide book there and they sent it back to us by post to the UK. Note, as we didn't know: you need to exchange your voucher at the kiosk near the boat first before boarding.

My Review

Apart from the entrance being no where near the street name so we got lost and went the completely different way as they didn't point the sign the right way, the experience was fantastic. The voucher exchange for tickets was easy and the ride up was fun. The view is amazing and during the day is fantastic but I will be going again for the night time.

Amsterdam Canals Candlelight Cruise Including Wine and Cheese

My Review
No actual candles on the cruise but still such a nice way of spending a night in Amsterdam. Unlimited wine and nuts but needed a bit more chesse per person. The tour of the red light district needed the guide to explain a bit of the history instead of just letting us have a peek. Well worth the money though.

My Review
We were meant to be a group of 11 but 9 didn't turn up so it was really strange being just two of us with the guide. We loved the tour of the different styles of coffee shops and meeting the local 'bartenders'. The guide was really informative about the history of the city. We would recommend but still a little weird as two of us.

My Review
A long and full day that took us to all the sites we wanted to see in one day in the town. The pick up in the morning was delayed by over 30 minutes and so we thought we had missed it and were unable to contact the office to confirm if we had missed the tour. The guide was very informative and gave us plenty of stops to take photos. We finished the day in the main square which was wonderful.

My Review
The guide was hard to understand over the microphone on the bus, but going through the town was much better. He showed us a lot of great sites but we would have liked some history as we went around. The obligatory stops at trade outlets were fine, and people bought stuff, but you could sit them out on the bus if you didn't want to go through. We enjoyed them though. It would have been good to know the prices we should pay for souviners though as we got caught out a few times thinking we were on to a bargain.
